Koelschtrinker (21489) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 9, 2017
600ml bottle. Nicely golden pour. Aroma is a bit old in the tooth, or oxidized. Falvor is autolyzed yeast, celery.
Post tasting thoughts:
This bottle was within its best by (7.17) but sometimes with German imports that is not a good timeframe. It also proclaims unpasteurized on the label which usually is a good thing but not here.
Dumpf hellmalziger Beginn. Mild würzig getreidig, zunehmende Süße. Zum Ende trocken, dumpf bleibend. Muss nicht sein. 7/6/6/7/8/6 radagast83 (8455) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2016

A sweet fruity aroma, pours a hazy pale straw color. A sweet grain taste, light body and grain finish.

Clean malt profile and some light sugar sweetness. Pours hazy golden with good foamy head. Light sweet leave. Easy drinking and good balance for what it is. Bottle from Schneider’s. Huhzubendah (3753) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Near black opaque body with a thin, beige, oily collar. Aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, roast, chocolate covered raisins. Medium too thick body, palate coating. Delicious flavor, bourbon character is present but not overbearing, blending in to the beer harmoniously. Outstanding. EAGLE82 (235) - Röslau, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
Very nice Helles. A Light redisch color, great aroma and a light sweet bitter taste.
